The Volkswagen Golf IV R32 has been the subject of a massive power package developed by German tuner HPerformance.

The insane Golf R32 came out back in August 2002 with a Phaeton-sourced 3.2-liter V6 engine delivering (at that time) a massive 240 HP (177 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft), enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 6.6 seconds and a 153 mph (247 km/h) top speed. Twelve years later, the hot hatchback has received a new crankshaft, Precision turbocharger while the displacement has been reduced to 3.0 liters.

Other modifications include an extra fuel pump and a catch tank, overhauled intercooler, upgraded piping and suction system, a flap-controlled exhaust and a customizable electronic "Boost Controller". With the latter, the driver can actually control the car's output which ranges from 500 HP (368 kW) to an amazing 650 HP (478 HP) sent to a 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.

The entire upgrade kit costs €20,000 and also includes bigger brakes, H&R stabilizers and Bilstein adjustable shocks, Recaro seats, carbon tube replacing the rear seats, along with a fire extinguisher and black BBS wheels.
